As a major European association dedicated to pursuing excellence in liver research and in providing education to all those interested in hepatology, EASL promotes research and education through the sharing of research findings in hepatology. Considering the difficulties faced by researchers in our field, the EASL Governing Board has decided to create the EASL Registry Data Collection Grant.
